The 7 Little Words game for iPad and iPhone was updated last week, to Version 1.41.1. This updated adds two new puzzle packs, titled Cakewalk and Diamond, and a few other notable new features.
Here’s the full change list for this latest version of 7 Little Words for iPad:
-Share your favorite clues with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
-Support for 180 degree screen rotation.
-Updates to 7 Little Words are only available for devices running iOS 5 and above. If you have an iOS 4 device the daily puzzles are still available and your purchases are in tact.
-Support for fast app switching. The game will now return to exactly where you left off when you leave and return.
-New puzzle zone Cakewalk. Everyone needs a break. Cakewalk, containing some of our easiest puzzles, should be a pleasant little diversion.
-New puzzle zone Diamonds. Don’t let its sparkle fool you – there is a reason this zone is named for the hardest substance on earth.
The support for rapid app switching and returning to where you left off is a little overdue, but better late than never.
I did a review of 7 Little Words back in March and described it as a wonderful and addictive word game for the iPad. It remains a big favorite for me.
7 Little Words is a simple and simply addictive word game for the iPad and iPhone. Here’s a slice of its App Store intro:

I’m a big fan of word games and this one has become a real favorite for me. In fact it’s my latest addiction on the iPad. I just about can’t go a day without playing it.

Wordish is a new word game for the iPhone that is very simple and lots of fun. Even though this is an iPhone app the nature of the game and the very bare bones interface mean that it works great on the iPad too.
I’m a big fan of word games on the iPad. My long-time favorite is Word Ladder but I always have a number of different ones installed to play on my own, with my daughter, or against friends and random online opponents. Wordish is very much at the most basic end of the spectrum when it comes to word games, and you certainly won’t find any strategic elements to the game as you do in Letterpress for example.
Instead this is a very quick no frills sort of word making challenge.

Letterpress – Word Game is a brand new and fun looking word game for the iPad and iOS. Here’s its short, sweet pitch on its App Store page:
Find words, steal tiles, color the board! Letterpress is a fresh new word game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Play against your friends using Game Center! The perfect blend of fun and strategy.
The game is already getting some rave reviews, and it sounds like quite a good idea for those of us who enjoy word games. It’s also notable because its developer is Loren Brichter, the creator of the hugely popular Tweetie Twitter client app. Tweetie was eventually bought out by Twitter themsleves and Brichter worked on the official Twitter app for iOS and Mac. Brichter is responsible for some of the most popular iOS interface elements that are now used in many apps – including the pull-down to refresh gesture that is used in Apple’s own Mail app in iOS 6 and by the hugely popular Facebook app for iOS.
I haven’t had a chance to give the game a try just yet – but I’m sure I will this evening. Have any of you played it yet? If so, please tell us what you think of it in the comments.
Here’s an App Store link for Letterpress – Word Game; it’s a free app with one In-App purchase option labeled ‘Letterpress Upgrade’ for $0.99.
